I've only had one appointment with Dr. Smyth - thus far - but I really liked his approach. I thought his examination was very thorough. He was willing to take the time to explain to me all of the aspects of my injury and treatment - both long and short term - including the dangers of rushing to surgery and why it would be a good idea to take a conservative approach; specific to my injury. Additionally, he was happy to answer all of my questions and take my thoughts into consideration of my treatment.
Finally, the office staff - from the receptionist, to the nurses, to the x-ray technician - was extremely friendly, welcoming and attentive. I wasn't waiting for very long during any parts of my appointment. They all seemed very respectful of my time. I've been to other Dr. offices; where it seems like the only respect should be paid to the Dr. - himself or herself. This was definitely not the case.
I look forward to working with Dr. Smyth and his staff through the duration of my medical condition and would highly recommend to friends and relatives.
Dr Mayer is the best surgeon I have ever had! If I ever need another surgery I hope it is one that he does.
I recently chose Dr. Baier to do my total hip replacement. He had been honing his skills with a relatively new anterior approach. He is polite, concise, and is clearly an expert in his field. He has a fantastic staff, who really take the level of patient understanding to a higher level. Dr. Baier and his team insured that I was ready for the procedure, and, more importantly, for the recovery. I was literally dancing a week after surgery, and continue to strengthen through PT at Greenleaf.
Thomas Baier, M.D. is continuing to perform the first anterior hip replacements at Advocate Condell Medical Center. This less invasive surgical technique, which replaces the hip joint through a smaller, anterior incision generally leads to a faster and less painful recovery time. Dr. Baier is now performing this surgery, in select patients, on an outpatient basis.
Gregory Caronis, M.D. and Lori Recker, PA-C recently attended a workshop sponsored by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and Orthopaedic Trauma Association on treating patients at risk for fragility fractures. The day-long course featured speakers discussing the standard of care for treatment of osteoporosis and important ways that orthopaedic surgeons and their staff can be involved in the prevention of fragility fractures. As Greenleaf’s fracture specialist, Dr.
